U.S. Geological Survey - Ecosystems
Science Support Selections are made for FY2007
I am very pleased to announce awards for FY2007 funding under the Science Support Partnership. These selections are made based on priority research and management needs as determined by the FWS Regional and Washington Offices. Congratulations to those who have been selected for this important collaborative effort between USGS and FWS.
The enclosed Excel workbook includes all activities to be funded this year; ID numbers beginning with ‘07’ indicate a new award. Please note that there are two sheets, one is sorted by USGS Regions and Centers, the other is organized by FWS Regions.
SSP in 2007
New activities which include research components require a peer reviewed study plan prior to the release of funds. PIs should initiate the peer review process using your local (Science Center or Coop Unit) peer review policy. Upon completion of the peer review process, please submit a copy of the study plan, including appropriate supervisory approval, to Steve Hilburger in Reston. Electronic copies are preferred, although hardcopy and faxes are also acceptable. Regardless of the submission method, supervisory approvals must be included as evidence of the review. Individual peer review comments are not required. Once the plan is received, a change of allocation will be prepared to disburse the funds.
Please refer to the “Study Plan Status” column of the announcement list if you are not sure if a study plan is required.
PIs or other appropriate Center/Coop Unit staff are required to include a description of the work under BASIS+ project 3210APN. A subtask number is assigned to each activity at the time funds are dispersed. The PI and AO are set up as Task Leaders, others may be added if required.
A complete summary of the funding process may be found here.
This information was disseminated via email to Center Directors, Coop Unit Supervisors, and Regional Staff on October 6, 2006.
